About Rob Watson

I’m a gestalt therapist with 14 years experience working in the community sector, which has seen me in roles as a drug and alcohol counsellor and working as therapist with people who suffer from mental illness
My passion for counselling and therapy stemmed from my time as a volunteer counsellor at Lifeline which ultimately led me to Gestalt Therapy and more recently to Somatic Experiencing. Gestalt therapy promotes being with others from a relational perspective that is grounded in empathic acceptance whilst cultivating authentic ways of being in the present moment.
Somatic Experiencing, which a is body based approach to healing unresolved trauma, compliments Gestalt therapy as they both use mindfulness based approaches that lead to greater access to personal choice, increased life energy and freedom from limitation.
I believe in working from a holistic perspective that embraces body, mind and spirit that is geared towards addressing the presenting concern in a caring, compassionate person centered approach. I endeavour to work in a collaborative manner that respects each individual’s perspectives, beliefs and values.
As well as my counselling and therapy training I draw upon my own spiritual values and perspective that are derived from both Eastern (Buddhist and Hindu traditions) and Western (Diamond Essence) philosophies.
